Is it possible to add a feature to open a file (a layer - typically a TIF/JPEGfile) when double-clicking on it on the Overlay Control Center? Then the selected file will be loaded in "Windows default" application for that filetype? This is handy when you want to edit a file.

    There is not currently any way to do that, although if you open the metadata for the layer you can copy the filename and then paste it into another application for editing.
